PC-BSD 7.1.1 released
The PC-BSD developers have announced the release of version 7.1.1, the Galileo Edition of their open source operating system. Version 7.1.1 is a maintenance release and includes several bug fixes and improvements. The release features version 4.2.4 of KDE as its standard desktop and includes X.org Server 1.6.1 and X.org 7.4. Wine, the open source software that allows users to run Windows applications on Linux and Unix by providing its own native versions of Windows DLLs, has been updated to version 1.1.24, fixing a number of issues with certain applications. Users can now edit saved Wi-Fi profiles and give higher or lower priority to Wi-Fi connections. Intel graphics card stability has been improved and several of the Nvidia graphics drivers have also been updated to fix issues that could have lead to a kernel panic.
PC-BSD 7.1.1 is based on the 7.2-Stable version of FreeBSD, an operating system derived from BSD UNIX that focuses on security and stability. PC-BSD development is sponsored by iXsystems and is released under the BSD license.
More details about the release can be found in the release notes and in the changelog. PC-BSD 7.1.1 is available to download for 32 and 64-bit systems and a user guide is provided. Users upgrading from PC-BSD 7.0.x or 7.1 are advised to use the upgrade / repair option during installation.
